Blogging again. Periodically.
I haven’t blogged in a while. In fact, I haven’t been very visible at all for a while. That mostly because I’ve been hiding in the real world, building what I think is a really cool business. I’ve been grinding it out like most other entrepreneurs, building, selling, building, selling.
Now that we’ve deployed the product to the first customers, I’m coming out of hiding. I want the whole world to use this product - even you. It’s the most powerful platform I could imagine to control the most important and scarce resource on the planet - time.
It’s called periodic. It’s not a personal calendar app, but it will power them. It’s not a travel itinerary app or online travel agency, but it will power them. It’s not microsoft exchange, but we think people will soon wonder why they ever used something so limited. Working with a couple of the smartest IU computing nerds I could find, we’ve built an API-driven accounting system for availability - of anything. That means we’re enabling a whole new exchange of real world services that can be booked online - in real time.
Sure, it can be used for existing things like booking appointments at salons, reserving conference rooms, or reserving your spot on a tour, but we’ve built this system to make it easier for innovators to create brand new types of service inventory and make it available to the world for instant purchase.
Right now, the API is accessible only to our paying clients, but we’ll soon be opening it up to the rest of the world. We can’t wait to see what you come up with.
